Type 6 Emulating Indicators are part of an effective quality assurance program. It helps identify possible sterilization process failures that may result from improper packaging, improper loading or improper operation of the sterilizer.
Emulating indicators change color when the specified parameter is provided. One emulator should be used in each sterilization package to ensure that the steam penetrates the packaging material and reaches the tools inside. These emulating indicators can be used for routine monitoring of steam sterilization cycles.
